Let the dance of life begin

I am here to sound off on anything I feel I need to voice about as well as to share and to have others share with me. My sister locks are what got this started.... so here is to celebration of my 'nappy tresses, my sister locks' and indeed life with all it offers.

This feels good

Well I am gonna share with you something I consider special. Today I was in the gas station and a 'dread' who was in the line behind me said he liked my hair then he asked me if they were sisterlocks (yeah!he new what they were) I said yes and told him they were 5 months old he said he was wondering because he was not sure if they were twisted or locked. Well he said they would lock up and do their thing in their own time!.
I walked away feeling good about me and other persons who have embraced their natural tresses no matter the method of maintenance . There was nothing but love as we chatted I never felt a vibe of traditional locks are better or that sister locks are not real locks jus love of naturalness and self love. It is interesting whenever I see persons wearing locks especially sister locks I feel like we have a connection. It is like I feel I know where they are coming from with the hair issue (I know this is not always the case but it is just how I feel)

5 Months and Counting

Wow 5 months time is wizzing by. I had my fourth retightening yesterday (and I promise I will post pics this weekend) and my head still gets tender from the process. But, I am still happy with my sister locks. I do not know if I posted this before but your relationship with your consultant is important. One of the many things that drew me to my consultant is her being true to the process created by Dr. Cornwell she is not trying to recreate. You know technically speaking Dr. Cornwell could have created the method had her own set of beautiful locks and left us' wondering how she got them. But we know the rest is 'herstory' because plenty of we a wear dem now!!!! '. We are prepared to when we have processed hair to buy plenty products and spend plenty money. Well enuff of the soapboxing. Back to the tender headedness it usually goes away in a few days and sometines I do a wash to cool off my head. But all in all I still in love with my sister locks!!!
